Short-Term Running Goals:

 I like the fresh air on my face as I step out the front door. I like the sound of my shoes taking their first strikes on the pavement. I like my ponytail whipping from side to side along my back as my pace increases. I like how clear my thoughts become with each passing mile. I like the sense of freedom that I feel in the stillness of the early morning. I like to run!

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Running in 2017 did not go well. I finished the year defeated. I seriously questioned if I should even continue running recreationally. I ran a total of 2737.69 miles, but had nothing to show for it. I achieved 0 PR's. I qualified for Boston, but was one of the 5000 non-accepted qualifiers. Even my favorite brand of shoes left my feet calloused and sore.

I intend to start over in 2018 by running fewer miles, resting more, and following a new racing program that incorporates strength and mobility exercises. If you read my blog, feel free to look over my history. Any comments are welcome and greatly appreciated. I'd love to achieve the following this year:

	Finish a race with a PR

	Complete a half-marathon without hitting the wall at mile 11 or mile 12

I just really want to enjoy running again!

 

 

Personal:

I am a first grade teacher. I have two grown children and two grandchildren. I truly enjoy everything about my life!

Workout:

  • 20 miles easy
  • If I feel good at the 17 mile mark I can speed up a bit in the last 3 miles.

Overall Average Pace:

  • ​10.11 miles outside - 10:08
  • 10 miles treadmill - 9:57

Conditions:

  • 45°
  • East 9 mph
  • Steady rain

Thoughts:

  • I stopped my outdoor run at mile 10. I was cold and drenched. There was no indication that the rain was going to stop anytime soon. I had been running in a downpour for over 7 miles.
  • Between changing clothes and driving over to the health club about 25 minutes had passed. My legs were a little stiff. The first few miles were difficult menatally. I eventually fell into a rhythm and completed the 20 miles.
  • This was not my finest workout, but at least I finished.
